Providence Health Care, along with Mount Sinai Hospital and North York General Hospital in Toronto have each been named one of Canada’s 10 most admired corporate cultures in the public sector for 2012 by executive search firm Waterstone Human Capital.
Ten organizations were recognized as national winners in each of four categories of “Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures”: Enterprise (revenues above $500 million); Mid-Market (revenues over $100 million to $500 million); Growth & Small Cap (revenues under $100 million); and Broader Public Sector.
“Culture is the one thing that distinguishes an organization,” notes Heather Connelly, managing director of Waterstone’s broader public sector practice.
In the broader public sector, “with its multiple bottom lines and a necessity to forge results in ambiguity, a strong culture is essential for strong performance.”
Great cultures, she says, “create a competitive advantage that generates outstanding results, in both good times and in bad.”
“This award confirms something we’ve felt for some time,” says Dianne Doyle, president and CEO of Providence Health Care, “that a successful corporate culture requires the commitment and energy of all employees. We are blessed with tremendous staff and physicians that have embraced our mission and values and live them every day.”
Program winners will be celebrated at the eighth annual Canada’s 10 gala and summit, February 4, 2013, at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto.
